We really are a friendly bunch and we’re always happy to talk about our work and our school, so why not come and say hello!

Molly Aylward – Head of Early Years and Reception Teacher

Molly Aylward – Head of Early Years and Reception Teacher

Molly joined Oxford High Prep School 4 years ago. Prior to that, she gained a degree in Early Childhood Studies from the University of Bristol and a PGCE in London. Molly’s favourite thing about teaching at OHS is, ‘without a doubt, the girls. Each girl at Oxford High School is an absolute delight to teach and it is amazing to watch the progress they make over the year.’ Molly recognises that girls thrive in the creative yet academic environment fostered by OHS, where girls come first in every thing we do and the school always seeks to think about how to create the best possible future for every girl, both pastorally and academically, right from day one.

Leeanda Chadfield

Leeanda joined OHS in September 2016, having previously studied Law at Birkbeck College in the University of London and taken a PGCE from the University of Greenwich. Leeanda believes that OHS is different because of the school’s broad curriculum and its dedication to ensuring that each reaches her full potential. As for working here, Leeanda is clear that her favourite thing is the girls themselves, as they are so inquisitive and eager and so much fun. Their enthusiasm makes it doubly rewarding for Leeanda to see the incredible progress they make over the year, and to feel that she had a part in that!

Jill Eyre

Jill Eyre

Jill joined OHS in 2015. Prior to that, she gained her degree Combined Studies with a Marketing Major from De Montfort University. Her favourite thing about working at OHS is the way that the girls bring their unique character to whatever they’re doing and that they feel confident to do so. This comes, Jill feels, from OHS’ unique ability to empower and enable girls to be themselves by promoting a positive, compassionate environment that is both driven and supported. For Jill, teaching Early Years is special because it represents a year of phenomenal progress for the girls on all levels, and because they make each day so much fun.
